Food Yoga- When Mistakes Get Delicious

Grown-up pizza!!!


I had these grand plans to make a tasty pizza with prickly pears goat cheese and caramelized onions. But it just wasn’t working. I tried, but square pegs, round holes and whatnot. The pears will make an appearance in another recipe. Now what should I have for dinner? I pulled out the tomatoes I had roasted and decided to make a grown-up pizza.


Pizza may not seem like typical healthy dinner fare, but if you keep the toppings in the veggie world it’s really not bad. Have a salad and you are set! I haven’t experimented with gluten-free dough, but it’s in the works!!! This pizza is about 300 calories (thin crust) for 1/4 of the pie.



It’s perfect for Meatless Monday. I topped this with my veggie of the moment, roasted tomatoes. Additional toppings were caramelized onions, fresh basil, feta and asiago cheeses. I used the cheese sparingly- less than a 1/4 total. I didn’t use sauce but instead brushed the crust with olive oil. Cheese is easily omitted- it could be substituted with a peppery jam!


Bake in a pre-heated 425 oven for 15 minutes!


I used tomatoes I roasted and pulled out a few things to make a yummy tasty pizza without sauce or mozzarella.
